The most distinctive season in Big Bear Lake is without a doubt from September to November. The leaves start to change color, the air becomes a little crisper, and best of all, Oktoberfest takes the stage.
That’s right, from September 9 to November 5, Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest will take place across nine weekends, so it’s time to dust out the dresses and your lederhosen (leather pants).
The 53rd season of the traditional Oktoberfest festival brings together the mountain charm of Big Bear with actual German customs, charismatic figures decked out in traditional garb, German bands blasting out oompah-pah tunes, and the Chicken Dance, a fan favorite!
Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest brings together friends and family to enjoy each other’s company and make lifelong memories.
The theme for this year is “Embrace the Moment – Prost to the Memories.”
The 53-year-old Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest has given its visitors a wealth of wonderful experiences.
Even if it’s your first time going to Oktoberfest, we’re confident you’ll make a tonne of memories while taking in the sights and sounds of Big Bear’s most renowned occasion.
